Science and literacy competition

Thursday, 14 March, 2013 - 09:00 to Thursday, 21 March, 2013 - 15:00

Working with the Literacy Week team (4th - 8th March), Yr 7 and 8 pupils need to create and display a science poem, based on any scientific topic. Pupils can write limericks, prose, acrostic poems, whatever they like. The competition will be launched in Yr 7 and 8 assemblies using a short you tube video - 10 quirky science tricks, to inspire them. Posters of entries from the competition 2 years ago will be displayed around the school.

Astronomy, Biodiversity, Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science, Environmental Science, Evolution, Food, General Science, Medicine/ Healthcare, Nature, Physics and Space Science
Age group:
